  • You are certain that you didn't park there-if you firmly believe that your car was not parked at the location of the parking violation, then don't pay the fine. If a parking ticket is known to have been issued wrongly, then it will be cancelled.
  • You have valid proof -it is advisable to present evidence that proves you were not parked. This can be as simple as a photograph of a car parked in another location with a time and date stamp on it.
  • The parking ticket is fraudulent-if you believe the ticket was issued by mistake, then you should dispute your Manchester parking ticket to avoid the fee.
